Message from Mrs. Carey!

Dear KES families,

Hope this finds you well! Currently, we have less than 30 instructional days left. We want to make sure each and EVERY day counts!! There is so much learning that can happen in those 30 days of school.

Our 3rd graders began their MCAP testing this week and WOW, have they been working hard!! They obviously take their learning seriously and it shows. Next week we move into our 3rd-5th grade testing for Math! Their teachers have been preparing them all year long and I know they will also shine and do their best!

Please make sure our KES Tigers come to school ready and prepared for the next few weeks! This includes a good night of sleep, a healthy breakfast, and plenty of water! They will most certainly show how much they have learned this year!!

Please make sure you take the time to check out the information below and all that I have linked to our newsletter; we have a lot of cool things happening in the next few months!

Amazon Smile Fundraiser Information!

One of our students, Hunter Sidebottom, has a rare genetic condition known as DeSanto Shinawi Syndrome (DESSH), which causes intellectual disability (ID), developmental delays, seizures, anxiety, ADHD, immune Issues and more. This syndrome was discovered about 7 years ago, and to date has less than 150 known cases worldwide. Hunter's family, along with some other families, formed a Charity Parent Foundation to raise awareness and to support finding therapies, research and eventually a cure. The DESSH.ORG foundation is currently fundraising to pay a researcher to delve deeper into the disorder.

Amazon donates to charities by linking Amazon accounts through Amazon Smile. Please consider linking your Amazon account to DESSH. SEARCH Amazon Smile for "Dessh Desanto-Shinawi Syndrome Corporation".

Students need to remember their own water bottles daily! We are still not able to use our water fountains, only the bottle fill up stations at this time.

Please remind your child to check our Lost & Found in the Cafeteria! There are many coats and items on there that are necessary for going outside on their breaks!
